Comments:

League position: 9th Gary Cahill was booked after 44 seconds, the second quickest booking in the Premier League in this season. AFC Bournemouth's Max Gradel was shown a yellow card after 37 seconds against Leicester City on 29 August 2015. Chelsea, who had now conceded over 50 goals in a Premier League season for the first time since 1996-97, had now kept only one clean sheet in their last 12 league games. Nemanja Matic scored in the third minute of added time in the first half. John Terry was booked for the second time and sent off in the fifth minute of added time in the second half.
